RICE KRISPIES TREATS
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (10 oz.) package regular marshmallows (about 40)
OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Coat a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray; set aside. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies and stir until well coated. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into prepared pan. Cool and cut into squares.
I know you can get this recipe right off the cereal box, but I hadn't added to my online collection yet. And who doesn't want this recipe in their collection? Rice Krispies treats are easy, inexpensive and loved by just about everyone I've ever met. We have a friend who always puts sprinkles on her Rice Krispies treats, so my children insist on it now. Why not? It adds to the fun. You can melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes, stirring once during cooking. According to the recipe posted at the Kelloggs website, reduced calorie/diet or tub margarine isn't recommended. They also say you can sustitute a 7 ounce jar of marshmallow cream for the marshmallows (although I've never tried it myself).
Who Dished It Up First
I'm guessing this is a recipe the folks at Kelloggs came up with to get people eating more Rice Krispies.
